Sources have reported that the New York Yankees have filled the once vacated managerial position. After a process that felt painfully long, Aaron Boone has been announced as the next manager of the New York Yankees.
This comes as a surprise to some who cite Boone’s lack of managerial and coaching experience. It will be interesting to see who he names as his bench coach. Aaron has spent the last few seasons as an announcer for ESPN, announcing several big games, including many Yankees/Red Sox series.
Aaron’s stats as a player were underwhelming at best. His career batting average was .263 with 126 home runs and 555 RBIs over 13 major league seasons. He last played in 2009 for the Astros. Most Yankee fans remember him for his “shot heard ‘round the world” in the 2003 ALCS against the Red Sox.
